Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

The Hunting Trip: A Novel of Love and War By William E. Butterworth III

W.E.B. Griffin is William E. Butterworth III, I think, maybe or maybe it is another pseudonym, who really knows.   This book is style wise like one of the many, many military fiction novels written by the author.   This is more humorous than most of the previous works that I have read by this author.  Rural Mississippi high society is kind of the focus but it really is centered on an author, Philip W. Williams III, who depicts his military career in detail.

Butterworth does have a flair for humor and revels in sarcastic and scandalous depictions of the U.S. Military, Ivy League edifices and the wealthy.    The story is primarily about Phil's growth from youthful indiscretions to adult indiscretions.   Wealth, education and military life are the focus of most of the humor but the institution of marriage does not escape the barbed but silver tongue of both Philip and Butterworth.    

BTW having shot skeet, Philip deserves accolades for his marksmanship.  

This was an amusing book in which Butterworth confirmed my own status as a writer as he defines one who has written, published and sold a book or two.   I also garnered some tax advice from the book which due to it's satirical underpinnings, I will thoroughly research before using.

Web site:

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
